Book Review

Superlatives Tag

I was tagged by a few people for this about 2 years ago. Better late than never?


MOST LIKELY TO BE IN THE MOVIES:

THE BOOK THAT WOULD MAKE THE BEST MOVIE

Amazon.com: A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses (2))  (9781619635197): Maas, Sarah J.: Books

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas

The Night Court and the city of Velaris, who wouldn’t want to see that?

BIGGEST DRAMA QUEEN/KING:

THE MOST (OVERLY) DRAMATIC BOOK OR CHARACTER

16034235

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas or Celaena Sardothian

Either answer fits because the book series and the main character are both overly dramatic.

BEST DRESSED

THE BOOK WITH THE BEST COVER

There are so many pretty books, recolored covers, special editions, sprayed pages. How am I supposed to pick?

MOST CREATIVE

THE BOOK WITH THE MOST UNIQUE PLOT, CHARACTERS, & STRUCTURE

23395680. sy475

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

I loved the way the story bounced between messages, surveillance/security cameras, legal reports – using them to build a unique narrative that crescendoed into a dramatic ending.

MOST POPULAR

THE BOOK WITH THE MOST RATINGS ON GOODREADS

28757261. sy475

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling

Unsurprisingly it’s Harry Potter. The Hunger Games is the closest after than and shockingly the next ones have about 2 million less reviews than Harry Potter.

MOST LIKELY TO SUCCEED

THE BOOK THAT IS GOING TO BE APPRECIATED FOR MANY YEARS TO COME

Six of Crows (Six of Crows Series #1) by Leigh Bardugo, Paperback | Barnes  & Noble®

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

CLASS CLOWN

THE BOOK THAT MADE YOU LAUGH OUT LOUD

My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows

MOST IMPROVED

THE BOOK THAT STARTED OFF SLOW, BUT REALLY PICKED UP

The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book 1): Riordan,  Rick: 9780786838653: Amazon.com: Books

Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

Usually when people aren’t able to get into this series it’s because Percy doesn’t get to camp until chapter 6, which means there’s a lot of time spent in Percy’s normal world before he is thrust into this new, dangerous, magical one (exactly how every other hero’s journey functions). It’s a time tested formula, but since it is a little slow at the beginning sometimes people have trouble getting into the story at first.

CUTEST COUPLE

CUTEST COUPLE IN A BOOK

Cute is very specific. I love Rhysand and Feyre, but I would never call them a cute couple. Clary and Jace? Hmm, no cute probably isn’t the best descriptor. Manon and Abraxos, closer. The first couple that I could think of that really strikes me as cute is:

Tara on Twitter: "Cress and thorne for the lunar chronicles shipweeks ^^… "
Art by Tara Spruit

Cress and Thorne – the Flynn and Rapunzel of the Lunar Chronicles

BIGGEST HEARTBREAKER

THE BOOK THAT BROKE YOUR HEART

They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera

The title is a total spoiler, but you always hope that it’ll turn out a different way.


I Tag:

Anyone who hasn’t done this in the ridiculous two years that I’ve had it in my drafts? Because I honestly have no idea who has tried it and who hasn’t anymore.
